All,

Help me choose the color for my swing arm! More info...I have a black rear sprocket coming and DID chain. My local powder coater can do color combos like these without a hassle.

What do you think?

Why not do it red to match the frame?

If not I'd go with all black.

they all look good
but i especially like the flat black
somehow the diagonal reinforcements almost look like bones
kinda goth and morbid but how about making it flat black and white bones and little drips of red holding it together?

Version 3. Looks like a strand of machine DNA or something like that.

This is my vote too. Pompetta's job looks killer (and I'm not even wild about the red frames- no offense meant to any red riders!!!!)!

I really like that version 2. Compliments the bike very well. If I had a SS I would do that.

I know this is sort of off topic, but everyone take a little time and just appreciate the artistry in design of that swingarm. if it were up to me (which it is, ill never paint mine) i would leave it silver. along with the forks, the swingarm looks to me like a bare bio-mechanical bone extending from the sinewy and flesh wrapped torso of the bike.

i like the coloring, but i don't dig the lettering.

were it me, i'd have it chromed and stretched about a foot.

okay... that's not true.
I'd take this colour but without description
regards,
Krzysztof

can you guys that have had the swingarm powder coated let us know how much the project cost
and did you take it off and put it back together yourself? was it difficult?
